Originated in ancient India, the word Yoga means 'union'
It involves the nowadays famous practice of physical postures and poses,
which is sometimes referred to as 'asana' in Sanskrit. These asanas are always linked to the breath.
The breath is the door between our body and our mind.
And because yoga is a door, it will open to many emotions...
you will feel some days more concentrated, other with fears, doubts...
some days more flexible and some more stiff and it will mean nothing but to show you
how every day is a new opportunity to be happy with what you have, accept it and honor it.
As the name suggests the ultimate aim of practicing Yoga is to create a balance
between the body, the mind and the soul.
In order to accomplish it, Yoga makes use of different movements, breathing exercises,
relaxation and meditation techniques.
So every time you come to yoga, you will be actually coming home. to be who you are, to discover yourself and fall in love with your life!
The key to success is to practice practice practice!
AcroYoga blends the wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics,
and the loving kindness of healing arts.
These three lineages form the foundation of a practice that cultivates trust,
playfulness, and community.
Jenny Sauer-Klein and Jason Nemer co-founded the practice in 2003,
which has since touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of people world-wide.
AcroYoga has 3 main elements:
Solar Acrobatic Practices that cultivate trust, empowerment and joy.
Lunar Healing Arts Practices that cultivate listening, loving and letting go.
Yogic Practices that cultivate breathe awareness, life balance and connection.
The solar elements are strength building, inversions with spotting, and partner acrobatics. A practice of TRIOS! Base, Flyer & Spotter. The base creates the foundation for the acrobatics, the flyer trusts and dances through the air
and the spotter makes sure this all happens safely!
These practices build a playful, strong community that can help us all realize our true potential.
Therapeutic flying is an inverted aerial massage. The base supports the flyer with their legs as the flyer hangs passively. The base uses gravity, stretching and sensitive touch to open the flyers upper body.
When the flyer comes down they do massage on the bases warmed up legs.
The session is complete when both partner have given and received, based and flown, inhaled and exhaled.
The glue between the Solar and the Lunar Practices.
A Physical Practice as well as a life philosophy that is honed through postures, breathing exercises, mantras, etc.
All partner practices are fed by solo practices.
In AcroYoga we have designed a Solar and Lunar solo Practice that will help
students embody the techniques that will feed into partner practices.
As we go deeper and self reflect in all areas of our life, Yoga Philosophy helps us to understand
our divine gifts and invites us to put them to good use.
It is the wisdom of yoga that helps us to approach these practices with humbleness, dedication and devotion.
The path of yoga can impact your every decision, action and breathe with mindfulness, service and love.
Traditional Thai yoga massage can look back at a long history of therapeutic healing...
If one traces the evolution of the techniques of healing-massage practiced in Thailand,
one discovers the astonishing fact that the earliest roots of Thai massage lie not in Thailand but in India.
The legendary founder of the art is believed to have been a doctor from northern India. Known as Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha,
his teachings probably reached what is now Thailand at the same time as Buddhism – as early as the 3rd or 2nd century B.C.
The theoretical foundation of Thai massage is based on the concept of invisible energy lines running through the body.
Yoga philosophy states that life energy (called Prana) is absorbed with the air we breathe and with the food we eat.
Along a network of energy lines, the Prana Nadis in the human being is then supplied with this vital energy.
Massaging these lines and points makes it possible to treat a whole range of diseases and/or to relieve pain.
